New England's second biggest ski area, Sunday River is ideal for families, with some of the best value accommodation in the US.

One of our top recommendations for families, ski holidays in Sunday River are made even more appealing by the resort’s excellent deals - these often include 2 for 1 lift passes, free group lessons and kids ski for free.

Spread across eight interconnected peaks, the diverse slopes and scenery create a real sense of journey. Snow cover is very dependable, with reliable annual snowfall topped-up with extensive snowmaking.

Early intermediates have lots of cruising terrain to clock-up, and the ski school’s learn to ski program is excellent. The experts in our office are big fans of the advanced steeps and bumps on White Cap, while intermediates can push themselves on the inbound glades.

There’s plenty to do in the evenings, from night-skiing and tubing to live entertainment on weekends. We often stick to Sunday River’s great local restaurants, or there are more options in nearby Bethel town if you fancy exploring.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Great selection of easy/intermediate skiing, not much of a challenge for better intermediates. A lot of the single and double Black Diamond runs are actually mogul runs. Excellent snowmaking facilities but not always a huge amount of natural snow. Apart from Chondola lift system mostly old and fairly slow chairs but, joy of joys, no queues anywhere except on a Saturday

Excellent resort! Loved the variety of terrain and atmosphere, would recommend!

This is a great resort for those who want something different from the Alps. The staff are so friendly and the place was empty as it was not a USA holiday week, but was our half term. My daughter had a full day snowboarding tuition 1 on 1, including lunch, for £60! Try getting that in France.... We will be back next year for sure.
